Battery charging and jump starting has loads of misconceptions and foibles attached to it.Trvelman868 said:Ford Assist (AA) started mine but when the sync 2 played up they new nothing about a battery reset. As the dealers wanted to book itin, either did not know how to reset or were trying to make a chargeable job.
This is not dissimilar to the Duel Clutch oil change. This little job can cost up to £300. Ford say change oil and filter at the 3 year service. My Kuga will have covered around 25,000 miles at that point however some of you will have covered 50,000 miles while others will have driven the average of 37,500 miles.
The Getrag gearbox is a sealed system therefore the oil change should be based on mileage not time. I seem to have read that the manufacturer recommends the change at 48,000 miles but without paying Ford Tech £1 per minute ???
